Didn't really enjoy this, I think the director was going for the old "film noir" feel. He missed, everyone hams it up, the women are over sultry and the males are too clean. I've read some James Ellroy (Brown's Requiem [highly recommend]) and it's pretty dark stuff, this film is too shiny it's over polished while trying to be gritty. Which is really quite weird as it's directed by Brian DePalma (Scarface). I don't know if it's bad casting or just a bad film but it just doesn't feel like a proper thriller.

I'm in the middle of a cool Hitchcock movie called Saboteur
http://blogs.creativeloafing.com/theclog/files/2009/07/filmsaboteurblog.jpg
but Don keeps falling asleep and I have to keep rewinding to where he remembers, so tonight we're going on a third attempt to finish this movie. The girl, Priscilla Lane, is the one who was in Arsenic and Old Lace. The guy, Robert Cummings, has been in lots of Hitch movies. My grandma always thought he was handsome and I never could understand why, until I saw this movie. In 1944, he is handsome. Anyway, it's about a guy who is mistakenly accused of helping the Nazis by acts of sabotage in the US. He knows who is really responsible, but can't get anyone to believe him and it seems that everywhere he goes, he only finds people who are sympathetic to the opposition. So far, at least.

Finally finished Saboteur. It ended with a long fall. Just like Rear Window and Vertigo. But I guess this was made before those, so it's ok. Hitch must have been a fan of long falls. AAAAahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Yes, you'll love it. Gracy Kelly plays a woman whose husband plots to have her murdered.

Smart(ish) "Spy" Action Movie, Not bad for killing (no pun intended) an hour and a half, large body count and loads of martial arts type fight scenes. A retired spy is working "security" when his daughter is kidnapped in France. Neeson is actually quite good in this, although some of the stunts/fights etc are nowhere near believable, he pulls off the man possessed very well.

Hated that movie so much!!! Although I kinda like Aaron Eckhart. He's in a new movie, called Battle LA. I'm part of the scifi society in my college, and we got invited to the press screening of it next week. Yay :)

It was alright. George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick were all good. I guess I was expecting something a little more. It also makes me hope I never get fired.
